Summary/Abstract: Grzegorz Stępniak argues with Joanna Krakowska's text Osoby. Penny Arcade i nowojorska scena queerowa (Didaskalia nr 123). Taking as his point of depature a conflict between two hiphop record companies (Bad Boy Records and Death Row Records), and analysing various phenomena in the American context, the author aims to show changes taking place in queer studies during the recent years. His purpose is an attempt „to define new challenges facing queer studies and confronting them with performances from Los Angeles that perform not only sexual or gender-based, but also racial, class and geographical 'difference'”. His analysis focuses on the „Chicano-American” company Butchlalis de Panochtitlan and Vaginal Creme Davis.
